Basic

Workloads requiring light compute and I/O performance.

Compute

Compute is provisioned in virtual cores (vCores). A vCore represents a logical CPU.

Compute Gen 5

Gen 5 logical CPUs are based on Intel E5-2673 v4 (Broadwell) 2.3 GHz processors.

vCore Memory Price
1 2 $-
2 4 $-

Storage

In select regions, you can opt-in to a large storage preview and provision up to 16 TB (preview prices apply). Please review the documentation page for region availability and more information on the storage preview for provisioned storage up to 16 TB.

Price
GB/month $-

Backup

Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your server. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage which is consumed by your server. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned server storage. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GB/month.

Price
Locally redundant GB/month $-

General Purpose

Most business workloads requiring balanced compute and memory with scalable I/O throughput.

Compute

Compute is provisioned in virtual cores (vCores). A vCore represents a logical CPU.

Compute Gen 5

Gen 5 logical CPUs are based on Intel E5-2673 v4 (Broadwell) 2.3 GHz processors.

Frequently asked questions

  • The Basic tier is designed for workloads requiring light compute and I/O performance. Examples include servers used for development or testing, or small-scale infrequently used applications. General Purpose is for most business workloads requiring balanced compute and memory with scalable I/O throughput. Examples include servers for hosting Web and Mobile apps and other enterprise applications. The Memory Optimised tier is for high performance database workloads requiring in-memory performance for faster transaction processing and higher concurrency. Examples include servers for processing real-time data and high performance transactional or analytical apps. Please review the documentation for more details.

  • For all tiers, the service is billed on a predictable, hourly rate based on pricing tier, provisioned compute in vCores and provisioned storage in GB/month for your server and backups. On your bill, vCore hours, storage GB/month for the server and storage GB/month for backups will have separate line items.

  • You are billed for each hour or portion thereof that a MariaDB server exists, regardless of whether the server was active for the full hour. If you have scaled your database, you will be billed using the highest pricing tier, provisioned vCore and provisioned storage during the hour.

    For example:

    • If you create a MariaDB server and delete it after five minutes, you are charged for one full hour for the provisioned compute and storage.
    • If you create a MariaDB server in the General Purpose tier with 8 vCores and then immediately upgrade it to 16 vCores in the General Purpose tier, you are charged at the 16 vCore rate for the first hour.
  • Yes. As of 1st July 2018, standard charges apply for network egress. Bandwidth pricing page has more details.

  • Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your server. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage that is consumed by your MariaDB server. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned server storage. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GB/month. For example, if you have the database storage size of 100 GBs, you will get 100 GBs of backup at no additional cost. However, if the backup is 110 GBs, you will pay for the 10 GBs.
